ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) — Bills DT Marcell Dareus has been excused to be with his family after his younger brother was one of three people shot and killed in a suburb of Birmingham, Ala., last weekend.

Coach Chan Gailey expressed his condolences to Dareus and his family. Gailey added on Wednesday that Dareus plans to return in time to play in Buffalo's home-opener against the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday.

Dareus' younger brother, Simeon Gilmore, was one of three people shot and killed during a burglary in Pelham, Ala., on Sunday. Authorities said 20-year-old Jon Staggs Jr. has been charged with capital murder and burglary.

Police have not released a possible motive.

Dareus, Buffalo's 2011 first-round draft pick out of Alabama, traveled home earlier this week to be with his family.
